This is an oldie. I had about ten minutes to set up for this. Used a cheap refractor telescope to project the image of the sun onto a piece of plywood with paper stapled to itas a screen. Camera on tripod, set on the other side of 'scope. Three things to move around as the sun was changing pretty rapidly. Didn't have everything aligned perfectly, so the circle is a little distorted. It was one of those once-in-a-lifetime series, though.

After reading your description, I am totaly blown away that you were even able to get any sort of image much less one mainly circular and with the annular ring clearly seen.

You definitely get the old college try award. I suspect you haven't tried this again since these eclipses don't happen every month in your backyard.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.
